Graduation Requirements

Students must have achieved a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0, earned 28 credits, and met all
CCCHS mandatory course requirements to graduate. Students are required to take 7 credits per year
and 7 courses per semester. Students taking a class before or after the regular school schedule are
required to report to the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI) for a study hall. This
catalog may change from year to year. Students are obligated to follow graduation requirements as
outlined in the Course Catalog received when they were freshmen. Students are not allowed to take a
course required to meet graduation requirements (original credit) over the summer. Summer courses
are only for remediation, acceleration, credit deficiency, and enrichment. Only if there is a scheduling
conflict on course required to meet graduation requirement, the course could be taken through FLVS
throughout the year.

Course Catalog 2020-2021
Educational Programs
College Preparatory (CP) Program
All courses at Clearwater Central Catholic High School are college preparatory. Completing CCC’s
graduation requirements in each subject area fulfills the traditional college preparatory requirements,
the eligibility requirements to be considered for the state of Florida Bright Futures Scholarship
Program and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). Students should be aware that
college admissions requirements and practices vary from college to college. Each college or university
has their own specific minimum requirements. It is important, therefore, that students and their parents
begin early to make themselves aware of the policies enforced by the colleges they intend to attend.
Remember, “Doing the minimum will minimize your college options; challenging yourself will
maximize your college options.”
Honors (H) Courses
Honors courses are designed to meet the needs of students who have mastered average achievement
skills related to those subject areas and compared to national norms. The basic content is covered at a
faster pace and affords students the opportunity to reach higher/deeper levels of learning.
Academic rigor is more than simply assigning to students a greater quantity of work. Through the
application, analysis, evaluation, and creation of complex ideas that are often abstract and multi-
faceted, students are challenged to think and collaborate critically on the content they are learning.
Placement is based on specific course requirements, grades prerequisites, teacher recommendations,
and academic placement. Because of the rigor of the courses, students are given an extra 0.5 quality
point on their grade for taking these courses. An Honors course at CCC may not be given this
additional weighting when used by the Bright Futures or Florida State University System.
IB Middle Years Program (MYP) Courses
The MYP courses have a challenging framework that encourages students to make practical
connections between their studies and the real world. Students who complete the MYP courses are
well-prepared to undertake the IB Diploma Program (DP). Students participating in MYP courses: (1)
build confidence in managing their own learning, (2) learn by doing, connecting the classroom to the
larger world, (3) outperform non-IB students in critical academic skills, (4) consistently have greater
success in IB Diploma Program examinations, (5) thrive in positive school cultures where they are
engaged and motivated to excel, and (6) develop an understanding of global challenges and a
commitment to act as responsible citizens. The MYP courses are inclusive by design; students of all
interests and academic abilities can benefit from their participation. Students are given an additional
0.5 quality point for taking an MYP course.
Dual Enrollment (DE) Courses
The Dual Enrollment Program is a partnership between Clearwater Central Catholic High School and
St. Petersburg College that provides the opportunity for students to take college courses and
simultaneously earn high school and college credit. Dual Enrollment courses are college level courses
credentialed by the state of Florida as well as the state university system. Students enrolled in these
courses have the opportunity to earn high school credit in pursuit of Florida high school graduation
requirements while simultaneously earning college credit toward a degree in the Florida State
University System. Grades earned from taking college courses at the high school level will become
part of the student’s college transcript and GPA. Some private colleges as well as schools outside
Florida may accept at their own discretion credit for these courses as transfer credits. Courses
designated in this catalog as DE are approved by St. Petersburg College (SPC). Faculty instructors
must have a master’s degree in their field of study and be officially credentialed by St. Petersburg
                                                                                                  Page 7
Course Catalog 2020-2021
College. Course content, syllabus, textbooks, and semester exams are sanctioned by SPC.
Dual Enrollment (DE) courses require a minimum of a 3.0 unweighted GPA, Saint Petersburg College
(SPC) enrollment verification and specific requirements by course. For more information access this
link: https://www.spcollege.edu/future-students/admissions/high-school-programs/dual-enrollment

Students interested in taking DE courses must contact the School Counseling Department to pick up a
SPC pink form to complete eligibility requirements. Qualifying will not guarantee placement into DE
courses. Precedence to student’s core courses and availability will determine placement. Students
need to register only once. If they have already taken DE courses it is not necessary to reapply.
Qualified students who participate in a DE course earn an additional 1.0 quality point. Quality points
are awarded based on an earned grade of “C” or higher in the course. St. Petersburg College requires
that any student who receives a semester grade below “C” in a DE course or who fails to maintain the
minimum 3.0 unweighted cumulative GPA be dropped from the DE Program. A 2.0 college GPA is
required to stay in the DE Program.
Students who completed this initial eligibility requirement will have preference when scheduling their
course requests.
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
AP courses can help students acquire the skills and habits they will need to be successful in college.
Students will improve their writing skills, sharpen problem-solving abilities, and develop time
management skills, discipline, and study habits. These challenging academic courses at CCCHS
present college level material and conclude with students taking a College Board test in May. Students
are given an additional 1.0 quality point for taking an AP course. Students taking AP courses must
have college readiness scores in addition to the grade prerequisites stated in this course catalog.
Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries award
students credit on the basis of AP Exam scores. Successful performance on the examination may result
in college credit. College credit is awarded by individual colleges (see
http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/apcreditpolicy/index.jsp).
Cost: A testing fee of $100.00 is required for each mandatory AP Exam (subject to change annually).
International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (DP) Enrollment
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program (IB DP) is a challenging two-year curriculum that
leads to a qualification that is widely recognized by the world's leading universities. Students in the
Diploma program will ask challenging questions, learn how to learn, develop a strong sense of their
own identity and culture, and develop the ability to communicate with and understand people from
other countries and cultures. Students interested in this program apply during the spring of their
sophomore year. There is a specific application process conducted by the IB Coordinator.
The International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program offers a broad and balanced curriculum in
which students are encouraged to apply what they learn in the classroom to real world issues and
problems. Wherever possible, subjects are taught from an international perspective. Students study six
courses selected from the IB curriculum, including the sciences and humanities. Three subjects must be
taken at Higher Level while the other three are at Standard Level. Courses offered at the higher level
must be taught for approximately 240 hours over the two-year diploma program. With a greater
number of required hours, higher level (HL) courses allow students to pursue a subject in more depth
than at the standard level. Courses offered at the standard level must be taught for approximately 150
hours. Some standard level (SL) courses can be taught in one year while others are designed to be
taught over two years. Students are given an additional 1.0 quality point for taking an IB course.

                                                                                                Page 8
Course Catalog 2020-2021
Students also keep track of extra-curricular activities known as CAS (Creativity, Activity and Service)
over the two years of the program, write an extended essay of up to 4,000 words and take a course in
Theory of Knowledge. All IB courses are designed for the university bound student and follow a
prescribed syllabus upon which the examinations are based.

Cost: There is an additional cost of $1,400 to be split over the junior and senior years for the IB
Diploma Program. This fee is levied by the International Baccalaureate Organization and covers such
items as testing fees, registration fees, grading fees and diploma fees.

A student who has successfully completed the IB program course requirements will receive a standard
CCC high school diploma. Students who earn at least 24 points after final scores on IB required
assessments from their six IB subjects, together with passing grades for Theory of Knowledge and the
Extended Essay, and complete their CAS requirements, will be awarded an IB Diploma from the
International Baccalaureate Organization. This includes a guarantee of the Florida Bright Futures
Academic Scholars scholarship.

The IB Diploma will be awarded to a candidate provided all the following requirements have been met

   •   CAS requirements have been met.
   •   The candidate’s total points are 24 or more.
   •   There is no “N” (no score) awarded for Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay or for a
       contributing subject.
   •   There is no grade E awarded for Theory of Knowledge and/or the Extended Essay.
   •   There is no grade 1 awarded in a subject/level.
   •   There are no more than two grade 2s awarded (HL or SL).
   •   There are no more than three grade 3s or below awarded (HL or SL).
   •   The candidate has gained 12 points or more on HL subjects (for candidates who register for
       four HL subjects, the three highest grades count).
   •   The candidate has gained 9 points or more on SL subjects (candidates who register for two SL
       subjects must gain at least 5 points at SL).
   •   The candidate has not received a penalty for academic misconduct from the Final Award
       Committee.

                                                                                                 Page 9
Course Catalog 2020-2021
International Baccalaureate DP Certificate Enrollment
Juniors and senior students are able to take some individual International Baccalaureate Diploma
Courses (IBDC) without registering for the Diploma Program. Courses which may be taken by
certificate candidates are noted in the course descriptions in this catalog. Upon completion of the
course and IB assessment, these students will receive an IB certificate for specific courses taken. The
results on their courses may qualify a student for college credit after enrollment in college (consult
with individual colleges/universities for policies regarding award of credit). Students are given an
additional 1.0 quality point for taking an IB course.

Cost: There is an examination cost of $150 per course which is due at the beginning of the year the in
which the student will take the IB exams. This fee is levied by the International Baccalaureate
Organization and covers such items as testing fees, registration fees, grading fees and certificate fees.

International Baccalaureate DP Course Enrollment
Juniors and senior students are able to take some individual International Baccalaureate Diploma
Courses (IBDC) without registering for the Diploma Program or the IB final exams at course
conclusion (with no eligibility for college credit). Students are given an additional 1.0 quality point for
taking an IB course.

                                                                                                   Page 10

Special Considerations

Dual Enrollment - Online courses
Dual Enrollment online courses are taken during the regular school day in the Center for
Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI). Students will sign a CCCHS Virtual Course contract
containing sequencing, attendance, progress, completion rate and expectations. All CCCHS guidelines
for academic integrity (as outlined in the student handbook) apply to virtual classes.
Elective courses offered as independent studies or after school
A few elective courses will be offered this year before or after school. The possibility to offer these
courses will depend on students’ interest based on their elective requests and the school’s ability to
staff these positions. Rules and procedures for students requesting these courses will be clarified after
assessing students’ interest. Interference with other activities will be excused for exceptional
circumstances. If major conflicts interfere with participation in these courses, students will have to
make a decision based on their preference giving priority to graduation requirements. Academic
placement and effective performance in core courses take precedence over these elective courses.
Students taking these courses will have a study hall during the regular school schedule during which
they will report to the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (CEI). Students may request a study
hall during the day to count as a part of their 7 classes per semester. Otherwise, students will earn an
8th credit that is considered enrichment. The following courses are offered as independent studies or
after school:
    • Musical Theatre 1 – Classes take place according the rehearsals and performances after regular
        school hours.
